Type weird round thing

The abs block was a block that allowed you to set the number of abs the sprite had. To count the number of abs the sprite had, you would need to type in a very specific sentence, which is "How MaNY aBS dOeS tHIs SPrItE hAvE?" into the text box. To remove abs, you had to manually edit the sprite to get the number of abs back to normal. 

This block was created by the Scratch Cat to measure his abs >:D

The only person that accomplished getting abs off of a sprite without manually modifying it is kaj.[2] This is the code he used.

when green flag clicked
erase () abs

define erase (number) abs
switch costume to ((costume) - (number))

Every Scratcher had tried and failed to gain abs, but this block was only able to give abs to sprites. Some genius Scratchers devised a workaround by editing the Scratch Team's top-secret JSON files:

when green flag clicked:
give () abs to (me v)::looks
